3.31 rear axle ratio was standard with the 3 speed manual, whereas 4 speed equipped cars got a 3.55, so there's a good chance this was an original 3 speed car. I too will be following along as you progress!

Hi Bill,

I was thinking the same thing that the car may have been a 3spd 325hp car. I believe standard gear ratios came in open diffs correct? This car did come with a CF coded 3:31 posi so maybe the person that ordered it added the 4spd. One of the things i wont know or be able to prove.

Yes, Positraction was an option regardless of gear ratio, and it certainly could have been ordered with the standard 3.31 gear ratio coupled to the HD 3 speed trans. A moot point given your plans for the car, but interesting to speculate nonetheless.

Default Deluxe 300

Looking forward to following this restoration. I drove a twin to this car in high school, Deluxe 300 Sport Coupe, Monaco Orange SS, no side stripe. Paid $150.00 for it in 1974.

What a stunning car. Can't remember seeing an orange 13437 car, a couple post cars but not a hardtop. Very worthy! Now's the time to get a set of door panels and seat covers ordered from SMS......they'll maybe be ready in 2.5 years.
